Just a few editorial things.

The first couple of paragraphs make it sound as if pipelines and steps 
can only have one input and one output, when in fact they can have several.

In Example 1, "Result Document" is given as if it was the name of an 
output, but it isn't a legal output name because it has a space in it. 
Probably best to use a different term (eg just "result") just in case it 
gets people confused. In fact, it would be nice if the figure and the 
example code were consistent with each other in the names of the inputs 
and outputs (ie name the inputs 'source' and 'schemaDoc' in the figure).

It might be useful to provide a full syntax version of one or both of 
the example pipelines in this section. They both currently use fairly 
heavy defaulting, which is fine if you want to indicate the simplicity 
of XProc but not so good for people just starting to understand it.
